Mars Bars Pikelets


Just over a week ago, we jumped out of bed at daybreak, bundled the dog into the car, attached the camper trailer and took off up the coast for a week of sun, swimming, fishing and relaxing… or so we thought! Little did we know that Cyclone Marcia was going to cut our trip in half and send us running back home to escape the rain and wind. Luckily we managed to have a wonderful break before Marcia arrived to spoil the fun but I didn’t quite get to do everything I had planned to. There’s still a pile of unread magazines, we only had 1 successful fishing session (I won the fishing comp with the husband by the way, 3 fish vs 1) and I didn’t get to make Mars Bars Pikelets. First world problems, I know! inskip So while the rain was pouring and the wind was blowing and we were tucked up in our nice dry house, I whipped up a batch of pikelets… in an attempt to feel like we were still on holidays (because when else do you have chocolate bars in your pikelets, really?). They were sinfully good. Perfect for an afternoon treat when you just want something that is really really delicious… and …. naughty. Yep, these are a sometimes food for sure, so make sure you enjoy them, sometime, ok? DSC_0111 They are super simple, just whip up a batch of pikelets and through in some diced choccie. Start with beating and egg and the milk. Add the flour, sugar and baking powder and beat again, until the mixture is nice and smooth. Add the melted butter and stir to combine then mix in the diced mars bars. Place tablespoons of mixture onto a greased frypan and cook until lots of bubbles form on the surface. Flip the pikelets and cook on the other side. Once browned and cooked through, serve while warm. mars bar pikelets steps
